    South Campus’ annual Black History Month luncheon features Dr. Cherry Ross Gooden 

    On Feb. 15, 2017, the San Jacinto College South Campus students and employees experienced a powerful introduction to Dr. Cherry Ross Gooden’s educational presentation on the 2017 theme for Black History Month: The Crisis in Black Education. Dr. Gooden opened her presentation by delivering Jewel Diamond Taylor’s “I’m not giving my Black back” poem entirely by memory and delivered with impeccable oratory style. Dr. Gooden then went on to provide students with a thought provoking presentation which asked students to critically think and value the opportunities that education affords them. Some of the powerful quotations Dr. Gooden used to exemplify the value of education to the audience were by Dr. Carter G. Woodson, father of Black History Month and Frederick Douglas, abolitionist. Dr. Woodson’s words “When you control a man’s thinking you do not have to worry about his actions. You do not have to tell him not to stand here or go yonder. He will find his ‘proper place’ and will stay in it. You do not need to send him to the back door. He will go without being told. In fact, if there is no back door, he will cut one for his special benefit. His education makes it necessary,” resonated with several students as did Frederick Douglas’s words: “Knowledge makes a man unfit to be a slave.” Those attending the luncheon enjoyed a wonderful and delicious meal prepared the by the San Jacinto College North Campus Culinary Arts students supervised by Chef Tim Banks.  Those in attendance feasted on the homemade meal comprised of tender smoked chicken, fried and flaky catfish, comforting chicken and dumplings, savory collard greens, creamy macaroni and cheese, buttery and cinnamon flavored yams, moist cornbread, sweet tea to drink and for a sweet finish- their popular award-winning peach cobbler.  There were more than 90 attendees for the event. The South Campus Black History Month Committee works in conjunction with the San Jacinto College Diversity Council.
